Choosing You by Bree Kraemer, book 3 of the Cedarville series.
This can be read as a standalone, which is what I did since this was the first book I have read by this author. I will though be downloading the first 2 in this series today and reading them as soon as possible.
Carly Graham, an independent woman who had her heart not only broken but shattered back in college and will never allow falling in love to rule her life ever again. She has two awesome best friends, family she adores, and owns a successful business. She lives her life exactly how she wants it. So why does a good friend of her 2 cousins cause her to question everything? He is so bossy and aggravating and makes her crazy, yet she always feels safe whenever he is near.
Anthony Scott owns his own security firm and is training his sister Addison to run it with him. He loves the new town he moved to. He has some great friends and a very supportive family. His only problem is his good friends cousin, she drives him crazy and has taken over most of his thoughts and is seriously cramping his hooking up with anyone else because all he can think about is her.
A bottle of vodka, and some seriously hot drunk texts causes too many questions that need answers. It seems Carly and Anthony are the only two that don’t know the answers to these questions. One day Anthony becomes aware of an issue with his sister and enlists the help of Carly and her friends. Fixing this issue is easy, the hard part is it causes Anthony and Carly to spend even more time together. Just when Carly is ready to face and deal with her feelings for Anthony something from her past slams into her life. She is left with a huge choice, and no matter which choice she makes it will affect everything and everybody in her life.
I loved this book, it made me happy, sad, hopeful, and angry all within just a few pages. The story flowed perfectly and the author created all of the characters in this book so that you couldn’t help but fall in love with them, or seriously detest them in a few cases. I will not only be getting the first two in this series but will also be checking out her other books as well. Definitely a five star read!!!
